Python 3: The Python Environment
In this course, you will learn more high-end techniques and strategies for programming with Python.
Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
- Parse command-line arguments and perform string validation.
- Build sophisticated structures such as bunch classes.
- Create your own APIs.
- Enhance your code with iterables, iterators, and generators.
- Manipulate textual data with regular expressions.
- Apply advanced object-oriented programming techniques to Python development.
- Exchange binary data with other languages and systems.
- Configure user setups and log activity.
- Calculate date and time.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Python-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and will contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Python Programming Certificate Series.
Prerequisites: Python 2: Getting More Out of Python, or equivalent skills. This course is meant for the intermediate or advanced Python programmer.
